Clinical Studies

Urology physicians are also active researchers, looking for new ways to better treat a variety of urologic conditions and diseases. Please ask your physician during your office visit about our ongoing research studies in urology.

There are nearly 900 clinical trials currently available at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (WFBMC). Before a clinical trial can begin, it must go through a rigorous review process conducted by the Wake Forest University Health Sciences Institutional Review Board to ensure that the safety, rights and welfare of human subjects are protected.
